bhamoldrep18bOur patron Toyah Willcox visits The Old Rep

A friend of The Old Rep and patron Toyah Willcox visited us on Friday 8 June to see her dedicated seat plaque in our auditorium.

Greeted at stage door by our Executive Director Michael Penn and General Manager Gary Stevens, Toyah was extremely excited as this was her first time back at the theatre in almost 30 years, back when she used to attend our Old Rep Drama School at the age of just 14.

Toyah’s dedicated seat plaque is located in our stalls, it reads:

‘a space where true happiness was found’

Willcox went on to thank The Old Rep for their hospitality, and said “This is where it all began for me, thank you”.
